Eggs Three Ways
Egg consumption in the United States is huge, approximated at 256 eggs per person, per year. With a population of 310 million that is 79,360,000,000 eggs each year. While the numbers are staggering it's really no surprise as eggs are an incredible versatile food by themselves not to mention their supporting role in various cakes, puddings, casseroles and yes, even meatloaf.
Today, as many of us consider how best to use the pile of brightly dyed eggs that fill our Easter baskets and decorate the holiday table, it is the perfect time to let this delicious ovoid bask in it's own glory as the star of the show.
There are so many ways too prepare an egg. I chose these three basics for my favorite characteristic which they all share. A deliciously runny yolk perfect for dipping. Also, when showcasing such a classic ingredient I feel it really is best to start with the basics.
